Becoming an artist
I wanted to tell you about my worst gig as an illustrator. It's a true story for all you aspiring artists chasing the dream to draw for a living.
Years ago, when I was young, dumb and full of hope, my older brother who's a web-designer asked me to help him out with a webpage he was putting together for a client. I was desperately trying to get some work as a comic artist, but I would have drawn anything just to make a buck. Then my brother told me that the webpage he worked on was for a piercing studio.
I give you all a minute to process this.
As you probably guessed, they were doing intimate piercings and they wanted to put up drawings of the piercings instead of photos because... well... everyone who's ever had the pleasure of seeing an intimate piercing up close knows why. But 300 Swiss Francs for a couple of genitals? Sounds like a job for me! This was serious money for an artist who was drawing for 20$ a page at that time, but was actually living on social welfare, drawing like a

So I'm about to become a father again to a baby girl! I have a two year old son and he's amazing! Currently my wife and I are starting our careers as freelancers and it's ridiculously challenging. I've had a bit of success here and there as a concept artist and comic book colorist, but I've always felt a higher calling for drawing comics. And recently I've begun learning to paint in gouache. Something I've wanted to learn for a long time being a huge Alex Ross fan and more recently guys like Paolo Rivera and Felipe Massaferra who do it brilliantly and offer no end of inspirational material.

Working hard is the key, but I'm finding my own pace as I deal with all of life's challenges, finnancial and emotional. Life is a gift not to be taken for granted so I'm doing my best to enjoy every moment.
I'm a professional illustrator living in Montreal, Quebec. I began my career as a colorist working for Digital Webbing Presents and soon after on the hugely popular video game comic adaptation, Bloodrayne.
My clients include, Marvel Comics, Image Comics, Hi-Fi Color Design (DC Comics), Boom! Studios, Devil's Due Publishing, Studio Lounak (Assassin's Creed) and many more small press publishers.
In 2011 I sold out of my co-created comic: "Space Captain" at the Montreal Comic Con and I hope to get back to writing and coloring more installments of the character with my partners in crime, co-writer Laura Burton-Bloom and penciler Kyle Butler.

Currently I'm working as a colourist for a Belgian Publisher on a book called J.Rom :Force of Gold
I'm also working on my comic book sequential portfolio and a slot games digital art portfolio.

I'll be attending the 2016 Montreal Comic Con selling my artwork.
